    "...Hotel security guards allege that Davis shouted obscenities at them."

    This is apparently what started the whole thing. Miami is one tough town. I didn't know they could put you in the cooler for shouting obscenities. Detroit must not have that law, or half of my old neighborhood would be on ice.

    Roscoe, what kind of crap is this that you are posting? What does it have to do with basketball? Has he been found guilty? That article is at least 16 hours old!

    I'm done with this thread. You are a horrible person for posting this. I don't believe my basketball heroes can do any wrong. Those cops set him up. I'm taking names!!!

    (NOTE: anyone who doesn't know me, this is total sarcasm). ;)

    From what I heard on the local newscast their was an arguement of some sort and then Dale got violent and shouted racial slurs and tried to resist arrest. The cops then proceeded to taser him.

    Say it aint so Dale!! :doh:

    And perhaps a reference to a certain article posted by SithSpud* about a past legal issue of Bhauncey Cillups* on another thread perhaps? :noidea: :eyebrows:

    Roscoe is simply posting info during a slow season... someone has to do it.
    This only becomes signficant if it effects his summer workout program... but it may be a notch against his rep when it comes to trades.

    Davis arrested in Miami Beach

    Reserve center, 37, is in an altercation with police at a hotel and is charged with four misdemeanors.
    by Joanne C. Gerstner


    Pistons reserve center Dale Davis was arrested early Tuesday morning in Miami Beach, Fla., after an altercation with police that ended with a Taser shot.

    Davis has been charged with four misdemeanors: disorderly conduct, resisting arrest without violence, assault and assault of a law enforcement officer.

    Each count carries a maximum of six months in jail and a $500 fine.

    According to the police report, Davis, 37, threatened officers and had to be subdued by a Taser to be arrested. The Taser burst left small puncture marks on his chest and abdomen, according to police.

    Davis' agent, Chubby Wells, said they are looking into their legal options against the Miami Beach police department.

    "We're talking to attorneys right now," Wells said Wednesday.

    "It's Dale's name on the line, and all I can say is that things did not go down the way they say it did."

    The Pistons also are aware of the arrest.

    "We are not going to comment publicly on this until we get all the information," Pistons representative Kevin Grigg said.

    According to the police report, Davis allegedly caused a disturbance and assaulted someone at the South Beach Marriott.

    Hotel security called police, and the officers confronted Davis in the lobby.

    The police report did not say Davis was intoxicated or otherwise impaired.

    Davis allegedly refused police orders to produce identification. A friend who was with Davis calmed him and got him to produce the ID.

    Miami Beach police representative Bobby Hernandez said the incident could have ended there, without the arrest, if Davis had been cooperative.

    "Once you threaten police, it's over," Hernandez said Wednesday night. "You can't go there."

    The police and Davis proceeded outside, where Davis allegedly began to shout a profanity and accuse the police of targeting him because of his race. Things escalated when Davis allegedly put his hands in his pockets, a move police saw as a threat. They demanded he show his hands.

    Davis responded: "I don't have a gun! Are you going to shoot me?"

    He eventually removed his hands but then balled up his fists, as if ready for a fight, and walked threateningly toward officers, according to the report.

    Davis was ordered to stop, or the police would use the Taser -- a device that shoots two probes, up to 30 feet, to deliver an electrical charge. The quick burst of electricity temporarily immobilizes the victim.

    Davis ignored repeated orders to stop moving toward officers with his fists clinched, the report said. The police shot Davis with the Taser. He fell and was subdued for the arrest. Police said he was cooperative in custody.

    Davis now will be subpoenaed for arraignment.

    Hernandez said it is common for these types of cases to end in a pretrial diversion agreement, allowing a person to perform anger management or community service.

    If Davis takes a diversion agreement, the charges will not appear on his record.

    Davis isn't the only athlete recently arrested in Miami Beach.

    Guard Gilbert Arenas and forward Awvee Storey of the Washington Wizards and former Ohio State receiver Santonio Holmes, now a rookie with the Pittsburgh Steelers, were arrested in May after run-ins with the police.

    Merc,

    How do you see the side effects of the Tasing?

    Will Davis be faster, possessing cat like reflexes and perhaps a Peter Parker-esque spider sense?

    Or will electric shock treatment calm his savage soul, reduce the beating of a warrior's heart, making him passive and ineffective in the post? A giant daffodil?

    IMO, this is why they play the games!

    LOL, I figured somebody might make that reference before I had the chance. Let's just hope none of our guys ends up with something to talk to Eddie Griffin about!

    The taser incident for swearing and claiming he was being targeted because of his race, will result in a nice chunk of cash for Dale. Gilbert Arenas was also arrested for no good reason. You would think that Shaq being a special deputy in Miami would have some influence in Miami. Looks like Shaq has fallen down on the job..
